Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge – Pets


The theme of this week’s Fun Foto Challenge is …. Pets!

We have a Greek cat living aboard our boat with us, we called her Artemis.  We found her as a tiny kitten, stuck under the engine of a truck, on a Greek island where we were sailing.  She is great fun to have aboard, and she has adapted well to life on a yacht. Here’s some fun photos of Artemis….

Conversation with the cat….


More conversations with the cat….


“Artemis, you’ll have to move in a minute, You are lying on an old piece of towel which I need for something else”.

No, I am a goddess and this is my day bed, I am lying here and not moving.”

“But you’ve been lying there for over three hours. Wouldn’t you like a bit of exercise, maybe a stretch and a bite to eat?”

I repeat – I need my rest. I have a lot of prowling to do later tonight.”

“Look – I’ll swap that bit of old towel for one of my best comfy cushions with Greek embroidery on…”

“I’ll think about it….. dont rush me. It took me ages to get settled and now you want me to move. That’s not a very nice way to treat your cat goddess, is it?”


Yet more sleeping….

“….and also you are blocking the locker door where your boat daddy keeps his tools, he might need something in a minute….”

Why are you treating me so badly? I’ll report you to the animal cruelty society…..”

The cat yawns lazily and changes position.

“Come on, let me lift you onto this cushion……..”

Loud screech and claws extended…..

Don’t touch me!  I’ve spend hours cleaning my gorgeous white fur…..”


Sleep time again…..

“How about some early dinner? You can have chicken pate or seafood chunks.”

“What about some of that luxury gourmet stuff they advertise on TV? How about you feed it to me by hand, in small pieces, then I won’t have to get off this cushion?”

Male boat human arrives, opens locker door, sending a furry feline flying. Cat slopes off and settles down on top of the female’s best fleecy top…….



Artemis waits for her servants to attend…..
